My Review

“I like having you wrapped around me.”

Congratulations to author, Rachel Caid, on writing a great debut novel. Healing has been on my TBR since the announcement of its coming publication, and I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to read.

“I wanted to be their protector, their refuge from pain and disappointment.”

I loved how Rachel Caid told this love story without having to scream, “I’m telling you a story.” The words flowed on the page and into my heart.  Told in dual points of view from both Noah and Anna, this was a very down-to-earth, believable story about two people finding each other, in spite of their pasts, and beginning new chapters towards a brighter tomorrow. The characters were relatable and easy to follow. There were many hot and sultry moments in the story that raised the temperature in the room and caused me to cheer just a little bit harder for this couple. Add to the mix a supportive but pushy sister, a demanding but devoted best friend, and a very sweet and young boy, and the mix is complete. Each setting and scene were described in a way that made me feel as if I was present in that place and at that very moment.  Ending the story, I felt acceptance and fulfillment as book one in this series came to a close, and was hopeful for the ones that are to come.

“He was the missing piece to our puzzle.”

Excerpt

“Are you going to stare at the door all night or are you going to come in here and explain what I just walked in on?” Christine’s shout from the living room pulled me out of my stupor. I turned and walked to the couch. When I sat down, I curled my legs underneath me and hugged one of the pillows. I didn’t know what to say. I wavered between showering Noah’s scent off of me and reliving the whole scene with my sister. She waited a few heartbeats, letting me settle, before making me spill.

“Alright Banana, I’ve given you a minute. Now, tell me again how you’re not interested in dating Noah? You seemed pretty interested as the two of you were eye fucking all night and I’m pretty sure you’re not supposed to suck face with guys you don’t want to date.” She quirked her lips and held back the laughter I knew was bubbling up inside her.

“There was no eye fucking and what you walked in on was a momentary lapse in judgment. He took me by surprise, is all, and it won’t happen again. I don’t have time and I won’t have a parade of men in and out of Roman’s life. This isn’t even worth talking about.” I was angry now; angry at Noah for kissing me, yes, but more angry that I let him. Hell, I did more than let him. Now I was knocked off kilter, feeling too much about someone I had just met. My world had spun out of control. It was one hell of a kiss though.

“You know sis, it’s ok to be a priority too. You are the best mom Roman could ask for. No one is asking you to stop being that for him. We just want you to take care of yourself too. You deserve it, honey. I know you don’t want me to say it, but I’m going to anyway. Henry would be so disappointed that you are holding yourself back. He never would have wanted you to be lonely. You have to believe that.” Tears filled both of our eyes; I knew she was right.

“I’m so afraid, Chris. So many things could go wrong, and it won’t be just me that suffers. I need to think of Roman. Maybe if Noah is willing to go slowly, really slowly, maybe it could work.” I stood and walked over to her, giving her a hug. “I need to sleep. It’s been a big night.” She nodded at me and I turned to go to my room. Shutting the door, I let silent tears stream down my face.
